“The Handless Maiden”

BodyDreaming™ Ongoing Professional Development Module

With Marian Dunlea & Sheila Langston

THIS COURSE IS NOW FULLY BOOKED

October 10th – 13th 2019
The Boghill Centre in the Burren, Ireland

BodyDreaming Handless Maiden (Oct 2017)

“Only a girl like this can know
what’s happened to you.
If she were here she would
reach out her arms towards
you now, and touch you
with her absent hands
and you would feel nothing, but you would be
touched all the same.”
Margaret Atwood

“The Handless Maiden offers material for a woman’s entire life process,
and covers a many-years-long journey. It is about women’s initiation through the rite of endurance, meaning to harden, to make sturdy, to make robust, to strengthen. Endurance means we are making something substantial.”
C. Pinkola-Estes

What is it to be a woman today? What is it that is coming into consciousness individually and
collectively at this time of great change? What are the values that we cherish? How do we embody
this new consciousness? How might we find our own robust and sturdy action in a world which is
crying out for the touch of the feminine?

This workshop offers the opportunity to explore these questions through the story “The Handless
Maiden”, as well as through play, embodiment, discussion and BodyDreaming™.

BodyDreaming™ is a way of working with dreams and images that tracks the pathways in the body
where the energy of the dream is held. It invites us into the place of healing between body and
dream, where old traumas, symptoms and complexes hold fast in the neural pathways of the body.
When supported, the body may be ready to release this blocked energy and be restored to its
inherent organic wisdom. Image and impulse align with greater ease and fluidity and we can feel
the ground of our sensing body interweaving with psyche, recovering our connection with the
living earth in a mutual participation.

SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING™ &
CLAY MASK WORKSHOP

31 October to 3 November 2019
with
Marian Dunlea & Wendy Bratherton

The Ammerdown Centre, Radstock, BA3 5SW, UK

In response to the call from previous participants and in line with their feedback we are extending this popular workshop by one night, we have managed to secure another day along with the use of an additional art room.

“We come of age as masks
Our true face never speaks.” Rainer Maria Rilke
SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING & RED CLAY REVEALINGS

Come and create a clay mask at Samhain, the time of year when the Cailleach, the Old Hag of Winter, makes her descent into the Underworld to incubate the seeds of the new life that will emerge at Imbolc, the Celtic spring.

We meet the Cailleach at the threshold of Winter in working with the damp, dark clay, learning to trust our impulses, listening to our dream images, feeling our senses engage with the prima materia of the raw clay. The mask begins to reveal itself and we begin to relate to the mask energy, the hidden face of the feminine.

Using a combination of Qigong and Biodynamic Craniosacral work, we will deepen into our bodies to see how our energy is moving and resonating at this time in the year’s cycle. The bodywork will prepare us to meet a body of “matter” – the clay – and to make contact with the Cailleach energy.

And we will experience BodyDreaming™, a way of working with dreams and images that tracks the pathways in the body where the energy of the dream is held. It invites us into the place of healing between body and dream, where old traumas, symptoms and complexes hold fast in the neural pathways of the body. When supported, the body may be ready to release this blocked energy and be restored to its inherent organic wisdom. Image and impulse align with greater ease and fluidity. We feel the ground of our sensing body interweaving with psyche, recovering our connection with the living earth in a mutual participation.

Come and discover the mask that will take you into Winter, be your guide and companion in the times of descent and incubation.

SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING & RED CLAY REVEALINGS

Psychotherapy in the Natural World: Healing ourselves and our planet

Psychotherapy in the Natural World: Healing ourselves and our planet

Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September 2019
Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, Ireland

With speakers Angela Cotter, Mike Delaney, Marian Dunlea, Shirley Gleeson, Joanne Hanrahan, Matthew Henson, Lucy O’Hagan

For millennia people have travelled to “the valley of the two lakes” to deepen their connection with nature, a beautiful place in the Wicklow Mountains that inspires a sense of ancient worship, the numinous and the wild. This conference is an opportunity to come back to these roots with other psychotherapists to explore different ways in which we can enrich and expand our therapy practice. Together we will be thinking and experiencing our way back to our ancestral selves in an understanding of the other-than-human world and all that it provides us with.

Our speakers will offer inspiring talks and workshops about integrating our work in the rest of nature; on orienting ourselves within our ecosystem so that we can draw on the self-regulating properties of our bodies, psyches and the world that surrounds us. Body therapy, forest dreaming, Celtic myths, and the use of horses in healing will all be explored in both presentations and experiential sessions. Sessions on foraging and ritual or shamanic practices will also be offered.

We will also be considering what psychotherapy practice means in a time of environmental crisis. How can we draw on these ancient wisdoms to ground ourselves sufficiently to work with environmental anxieties without being overwhelmed? While our young people are directly expressing their fear for their future and the future of our planet, what intelligence and knowledge can the psychotherapy profession bring to help us with this?

“Hemmed round by rationalistic walls, we are cut off from the eternity of nature.”
C. J. Jung (Collected Works, Volume 8. Pp 380-381)

Discovering the Unlived Life with Bodydreaming™ and Mask Work 2019

DISCOVERING THE UNLIVED LIFE
WITH BODYDREAMING™ AND MASK WORK

11th – 17th June 2019

Northern Greece

 

Led by Sue Congram & Marian Dunlea, with Pauline Sayhi
At the traditional, charming SKITES Hotel, Ouranoupolis, Chalkidiki, Northern Greece

A Marion Woodman Foundation Community Workshop

Working with BodyDreaming™, mask work, art, voice and movement, we will connect more deeply to our bodies and psyche allowing our imagination to flow freely. Surrounded by the beauty of Skites on the edge of the Aegean sea, a source of calm and energy, we will give expression to the unlived life by making a mask.
We will then explore how to live the new energy that arises.
This is both a personal development and teaching workshop.

If you have already made a mask in a previous workshop, you may wish to bring it and work more deeply with it instead of making a new one.
